Church Picnic @ WorldSong Camp, August 23!

The date is Saturday, August 23rd from 11AM until 4PM, at WorldSong Camp in Cook Springs, Alabama - just off of I-20 East, about 25 minutes from our church. Fried chicken, drinks, and paper goods will be provided. Bring your favorite sides and/or desserts to add to the meal. We will begin eating right at 12Noon so get there early with your special culinary contribution. After lunch you can play on the water slide, or watch the smaller kids on the moonwalk/ball pit combo, climb the mountain, hike, or sit around and enjoy each other. The large swimming pool, with lifeguards, will be open from 1 until 4PM. Bring a poolside chair or just jump in!  Make your plans now for a great church family day, hiking, swimming, climbing the mountain or just hanging out.  It's all good!  

LPBC Task Force Recommendations

We appreciate your attendance at our town hall this past Sunday afternoon, August 17, 2014, to discuss the recommendations of the Church Needs Task Force.
If you were not able to attend the town hall, written copies of the recommendations are available in the church office for your review and consideration.
In addition, we do have copies of the Auxano presentation that has been presented to the Task Force, the Deacons and the Church Council on several different occasions.

Children's Ministry - Interim Coordinators Update

In the past few weeks, Pastor Scott and Nate have worked to identify two individuals to help to coordinate different aspects of the Children's Ministry during this interim period.  These individuals were submitted to and approved by the Personnel Committee.  They are:
•    Jessica Brasher - Jessica will serve as our Interim Child Care Coordinator.  In this role, she will be responsible for scheduling and supervising child care for Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings, and for scheduling child care for other church events.  Having served in our Children's Ministry for several years now, Jessica is well known to our parents with preschoolers and has showed herself to be trustworthy, reliable, and loving in her interactions with children.
•    Steven Ray - Steven will serve as our Interim Children's Ministry Coordinator.  In this role, Steven will be responsible for working with our Children's Ministry leaders and volunteers to plan, coordinate, and implement events and activities for our children.  He will also work to support our AWANA and Sunday school leaders and be the point person for Children's Ministry communications.  Many of you know Steven because he served our church faithfully for two years in the role of Interim Minister of Music.  During those two years, Steven showed initiative, faithfulness, administrative ability, and forethought.
Nate will work closely with both Jessica and Steven in the coming days as they take on these roles.  Please be in prayer for them as they begin these new roles.  Also, when you can, please be available to help when they call.  In order for our Children's Ministry to thrive during this interim period, it will be necessary for each of us to lend a hand and our gifts to this ministry.

Children's Minister Search Committee Update

The Nominating Committee is still in the process of putting the Children's Minister Search Committee together.  They have worked diligently on this matter and hope to finish soon.  When the Search Committee has been seated, we will announce their names to the congregation.
